Re: Hingis vs. Serena: Favorite Match

2001 Australian Open. One of my favourite matches ever, and one of the best Hingis played.

2001 AO QF - that was a great match from both sides. 8-6 in the third - are you kidding me?

Re: Hingis vs. Serena: Favorite Match

2001 AO QF, one of the great all time classics.

1999 USO Final S.Williams def. M.Hingis 63 76 comes a close second though

She absolutely was. That was a preview of Serena circa 2002. Lindsay gave her a great warmup the match before (which was actually the best match of that tournament...if not 2001 overall).

I like that way of putting it.

That Lindsay match was definitely the best Lindsay/Serena one I've ever seen.

Re: Hingis vs. Serena: Favorite Match

2001 AO QF. No question about it, the best match played between this generation of players (Hingis-Davenport-Serena-Venus). The RG 1992 final (Seles-Graf) of this generation.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

2000 USO SF Hingis v. Venus was better. I can think of a few that compete with that match.

Re: Hingis vs. Serena: Favorite Match

2001 QF Australian Open will always be one of the best matches of the modern era. Another match from Hingis' point of view would have been the match they played in Sydney in 2001, the week before the Aus Open, where Martina came back from 4-1 and two service breaks in the second set down to comeback and win the set and match 64 75.

I completely disagree. I've seen their AO QF match and I think it's still overrated.

Re: Hingis vs. Serena: Favorite Match

I LOVE their first meeting in Miami.

An inexperienced Serena was leading in the third until Martina took a bathroom break to break Serena's rhythm. Nonetheless, it's my favorite Hingis/Serena match.

I agree about that Miami meeting. Serena was one of the first players not to be daunted by the superlative skills of Hingis, usually everyone got flummoxed at the prospect of playing Hingis. Serena's serve even then was SO good

Their best match in terms of quality was the Aussie Open 2001 quarter-final. Hingis dug so deep, and Serena just played every shot in her repetoire but still couldnt pull it off. Great drama
